Did you know . . .?

That our own Bill Shope was one of the original Ramchargers? I know it says it under his Avatar but it never dawned on me what that meant until I got in a conversation with him in some emails. He was one of the guys sitting around the coffee table who thought up the drag racing team in the first place!

We're not worthy, we're not worthy!
